Treasures in Heaven

Matthew 6 19-21

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 6:19-21

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

There’s nothing wrong with having nice things. The problem is idolizing material things over treasuring what we have in Christ. It’s more important to focus on eternal things which are more valuable than anything here on earth that is only temporary. Start thinking about ways to use your money, gifts and talents for God’s purpose and make it a priority in the coming year.

Is It Worth Your Soul?

Mark 8 36

Verse of the Day:  Mark 8:36

What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?

There is nothing in this world worth losing your soul for. That may sound harsh but it is the reality.  A big house, expensive car, your career, fame, fortune, none of it is worth losing your soul. You can’t take any of those things with you into eternity. It may feel or seem good in the moment but your time on earth is just a speck compared to all eternity. Whatever pulls you away from God needs to go, let nothing come between you and God. Instead, put Jesus first and live a life of faith and holiness. Don’t lose your soul over something temporary and just to be clear, everything on earth is temporary.

 

Is It Worth Your Soul?

Verse of the Day: Matthew 16:26

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?

 

There is nothing in this world worth losing your soul for. That may sound harsh but it is the reality.  A big house, expensive car, fame, fortune, none of it is worth losing your soul over. You can’t take anything you gain in this world with you into eternity. Don’t lose your soul over something temporary and everything on Earth is temporary.
